Comic Review 238 // The Amazing Adventures of Batman: Rain of Fear by Brandon T. Snider

I am really starting to enjoy these short kid-themed comics, I love a fun-filled Batman tale, and after completing the Bane Drain Adventure, I couldn't resist reserving the rest of the set. So expect to see a lot more of these adventures.

Title: Rain of Fear!
Author: Brandon T. Snider
Illustrations: DarĂ­o Brizuela
Blurb: When Scarecrow fires his fear cannon into the clouds, Batman and Robin find themselves awash in a . . . Rain of Fear! Will the heroes save the day? Find out in this action-packed chapter book for young readers.

Format: 32 pages, Hardcover


Okay as mentioned I am personally enjoying these titles, but so is my three-year-old. It is the perfect way to spend a Tuesday night reading through one of these at bedtime. Like the rest of the titles, this is aimed at a younger audience and avoids a lot of the violence and fighting you would traditionally find in a Batman title.

Scarecrow is definitely a creepy ass villain, as he poisons Gotham and Batman with Fear Gas. It is up to young Robin to save the day and rescue his mentor. It is a classic teach-your-kid-a-lesson story, about not letting your fears control you and that you can achieve anything if you work hard enough. There are definitely some fun sections like Robin zipping around on the bike and getting to be the hero. Which my kid found hugely enjoyable. I wonder if Batman will have a different side kid in every book?

The artwork of Dario Brizuela is a perfect kid-friendly level. Bright, bold and clean. Not gritty, or dark here. Looks very similar to the early 2000s cartoon network shows. Perfectly fine for children but may not hold the interest of an adult! But hey it's not meant for you.

Ultimately a fun enough read, a great way to spend some time with the kids and have a good snuggle whilst reading.
